Everyone's in now except Uruk.  Guess we'll w8 a minute.  ;D
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Its Tough to be a God, the God of Mictlan, looks forward to you all making his life less tough by recognizing His Greatness and preemptively surrendering to the Glorious Nation of Mictlan.

And a minute is all you have to w8 for!   ;D

Pretender submitted.  Thanks for setting this up al_infierno.  This should be fun.

FYI, it occurred to me that I can change the turn interval.  I increased the time limit from 24 hours to 72 hours to give everyone a bit more breathing room.  O0

Yeah.  We should mostly shoot for ~turn a day where possible, but it's better if someone needs a little more time to not stale them.  The implications on the game can be pretty significant.

Sounds good. Hopefully we can keep up the 2 turns/day for the early stage of the game.

Sorry guys.. last turn was in my Spam folder for some reason. >:(

I kept waiting and waiting for the next turn last night.  Saw everyone online and was thinking, hmmm... wonder what's up.  When I checked this morning I saw I was the only hold up..... :crazy2:

New patch rolled out today, including a new EA nation!

Anyone know if this patch will have an impact on our ongoing game?

I do not believe it or the subsequent hotfix will matter to us.

Friday PM - Gents, sorry for my tardiness. I will get this turn in tonight, but I will be slow until Sunday PM. My wife unexpectedly scheduled a mini-family reunion this weekend and I will have a house full of relatives this weekend. I should be able to sneak off and keep things rolling at a slow pace, at least.

No worries, take your time and let me know if you need me to extend the turn timer.  I'd rather do that than have anyone miss a turn.  O0

With that last turn, my pretender died unsuccessfully defending my capital, so I'm effectively knocked out of the game.  I've handed off the admin PW to w8 - good luck to the survivors who'll be fighting over scraps of my corpse  :notworthy:
